The Instacart guide to lemon basil


About lemon basil

Lemon basil is a hybrid known for its sweet, lemony aroma. This popular herb is believed to have originated from Asia and is used often in Asian cuisine. Other names for lemon basil include hoary basil, Thai lemon basil, and Lao basil. Like conventional basil, lemon basil is a green, leafy herb. The leaves of lemon basil are thinner and lighter green than regular basil, with a slightly serrated edge. Lemon basil is available all year long, but its peak season is summer. Most of the lemon basil in the world is grown in southern Asia and northeastern Africa.

Lemon basil is a good source of beta-carotene and vitamin K. It also provides a small amount of magnesium, iron, copper, calcium, vitamin C, and manganese. The powerful antioxidants citral and limonene are also present in lemon basil and are responsible for its bright, citrus aroma.
